The private pesticide applicator license issued by the Missouri Dept of Agriculture is required for producers wanting to purchase and apply restricted use pesticides. Application by unlicensed workers under the supervision of licensed applicators will no longer be allowed beginning in 2025. Agricultural producers needing to obtain or renew certification of this license must take this pesticide safety training every five years. You must be 18 years of age and directly involved in the production of agricultural commodities to obtain this license.

We are working diligently with the Missouri Department of Agriculture to update our pesticide safety education program to meet new state and federal requirements, and to bring you the cutting-edge information needed to navigate these unprecedented times. This will meet EPA and MO Dept of Ag requirements.  We look forward to working with you to prosper Missouri as we race toward our 2030 goal of doubling this state's agriculture at #2xAg2030!

This class does not include the annual training required to apply synthetic auxin herbicides (i.e. dicamba) given by the registrants.

This training also does not include the supplemental training required to apply paraquat dichloride.
